By BBN Staff: Today, yoga practitioners, aspiring yoga practitioners and those interested in the benefits of yoga and mindfulness meditation, gathered at the Harbour View Greens for the 4th Annual Belize International Yoga Festival.
The festival featured lessons in various forms of yoga, meditation, and group discussions on a variety of topics dealing with holistic wellness.
Michelle Williams, founder of the event said, “The Belize International Yoga Festival is a time for positive interaction which is vitally important for the well-being of our community and our country. It’s a non-alcoholic, family-friendly event and the first of
its kind in Belize and the region, patterned after similar festivals around the world.”
Williams said that the event is used to raise awareness about the positive effects of mindfulness and yoga, as well as to give
like-minded people a space to enjoy soulful moments of wellness, healing relaxation, and reflection. Williams, who is also the founder of the non-profit organization Rhythm of Change Belize, says that the festival is the signature fundraising event for the organization to continue its mission which is three-fold: peacebuilding and social transformation, training and entrepreneurship; and community building.
One of the sessions was led by Jeremy Enriquez who was one of the leading advocates for mindfulness in schools which led to the Ministry of Education having 25 school teachers trained to be mindfulness educators.
